Spanish Music from Gran Canaria: Germán López, timple

No passport needed to make your way to Music on the Square for an intimate evening with Germán López, master of the timple, the diminutive, five-string instrument intrinsic to the music of the Canary Islands. Just close your eyes, leave lingering thoughts of winter behind and soak in two generations of sunny Spanish-influenced music and the epicurean art of chef John Conrad as you’re transported to the island of Gran Canaria off the western coast of Africa. This sensory excursion offers two levels of seating:

Sit and Dine: $40/person: Doors open at 6 p.m. for a multi-course meal, including pork verde tostadas, estofado de conje en tomate (braised rabbit and tomato stew) and dessert, hand-crafted for the event by Wasser Brewing Co.

Music and Dessert: $15/person: Doors open at 7:15 p.m. for those wanting to enjoy a sweet evening of music and dessert.

About the Artist: Germán López, an esteemed timple player from Gran Canaria, entered the Conservatory of Music of Las Palmas at the age of seven, completing his master’s degree in 2001. As a conservatory-trained musician, López blends the the ancient traditions of the Canary Islands with musical virtuosity. Since making his public debut at the age of ten, memorable collaborations include the Orquesta Filarmónica (Symphony Orchestra) de Gran Canaria, such festivals as WOMAD, Circuits INJUVE and Expozaragoza, among others. In 2014, he starred in the opening ceremony of the annual WOMEX conference earning an unexpected, spontaneous standing ovation.
